IonSound Project will play super-charged ‘avant pop’ for it’s third concert of the season! A program
inspired as an incarnation of the art of Andy Warhol and others will be both thought provoking
and pure pop fun.
Singer/songwriter, Emily Pinkerton, will add her unique fresh sound as special guest artist. IonSound will be giving the world premiere of "Red Rocking Chair" which was co-written by Pittsburgh composer Patrick Burke and Ms. Pinkerton. It is based on a field recording of the folk singer Sherman Hammons in West Virginia.
Emily Pinkerton is a singer/songwriter and ethnomusicologist whose work draws from musical traditions of North and South America. Her latest project, “Ends of the Earth,” is a collection of powerful folk songs that pay tribute to the teachers and popular musicians who have shaped her style.
Emily’s neo-traditional compositions are the result of three years of study in South America, sponsored in part by the Fulbright Commission and the Organization of American States, and a lifetime love of Old-Time fiddle and banjo. She recently took 3rd place in the traditional fiddle category at Uncle Dave Macon Days (Murfreesboro, TN)and in flatfoot dancing at the Appalachian String Band Festival (Clifftop, WV).
Currently, Emily is a member of the music staff at First Unitarian Church, and teaches Latin American music and World Music at the University of Pittsburgh. She and her band are part of the Pennsylvania Performing Arts on Tour (PennPAT) Roster, and perform throughout the region (www.emilypinkerton.com)
